Poppadom goes Bach

Theme from "When the bhaji comes in"

Anything from the Collected Woks of the great composers :wink:

If they include chinese dishes, you could add "Cornet Chop Suey" and "Chinese Takeaway".

not quite classical, but funny!!

Sung to the tune of Queens Bohemian Rhapsody ...

Naan, just killed a man

Poppadom against his head

Had lime pickle now he's dead.

Naan, dinner's just begun

But now I'm gonna throw it all away.

Naan, ooh, ooh Didn't mean to make you cry

If I'm not back from the loo by this time tomorrow

Curry on, curry on

Cause nothing really madras.

Too late, my dinner's gone

Sends shivers down my spine

Bottom aching all the time

Goodbye onion bhaji, I've got to go

Gotta leave you all behind and use the loo.

Naan, ooh, ooh

This dopiaza is so mild

I sometimes wish we'd never come here at all.

(guitar solo)

I see a little chicken tikka on the side

Rogan Josh, rogan josh, pass the chutney made of mango

Vindaloo does nicely very very spicy


Byriani (Byriani)

Byriani (Byriani)

Byriani and a naan

(A vindaloo loo loo loo)

I've eaten balti, somebody help me

He's eaten balti, get him to the lavatory

Stand you well back

'Case the loo is quarantined

here it comes

There it goes

Technicolor yawn

I chunder


It's coming up again

(There he goes)

I chunder, it's coming back again

(There he goes)

Coming back again

(up again)

here it comes again.

(No, no, no, no, no, no, NO)

On my knees, I'm on my knees

On his knees, oh there he goes

This vindaloo

Is about to wreck my guts

Poor meeee... poor meeee.... Poor MEEEEE!

(Guitar solo)

So you think you can chunder and then feel alright?

So you try to eat curry and drink beer all night?

Oh maybe, but now you'll puke like a baby

Just had to come out

It just had to come right out in here.

(Guitar solo)

(slow bit)

korma or dopiaza

bhaji, naan or saag

Nothing makes a difference

Nothing makes a difference

To meeee....

(Any way the wind blows.............shshshsh)

A friend of mine, Clare who is quite new to tmp and has been browsing some of the older topics sent me the text to the Bohemian Rhapsody curry song yesterday. Guess what we played at rehearsal last night.......... and being on 3rd cornet I had plenty of bars rest to try to remember the words!!! :D Very funny!
